Considering that 60% to 70% of the population do not want abortions banned in any state, overturning Roe v. Wade would be one of the most divisive things that one could do.

His point is that GOP legislators couldn't advocate for banning abortion anymore; their constituents would boot them out. It's easy for them to advocate for it when they know the Supreme Court will overturn their restrictions. If it were a legislative issue, facing an electorate that's nearly 3/4 agreed on the idea of "safe, legal, and rare," it would be total political suicide to advocate for banning abortion, and many GOP politicians who pander to the extreme right would have to get real moderate on the issue real fast, and it would take away most of the most public hardline pro-life discussion.
